    Ya, I saw the amateur's test and wasn't impressed quite frankly. '"Any test " ? ....Sure whatever.... Criticizing a unit that isn't even out yet is childish. No other word for it.
    Show me a legit test that shows otherwise?

    FYI both Radar ROY and Speedzones have said Cobra's are indeed improving.

    "I'm just stating facts"

    Hardly[/QUOTE




    HARDLY you say..Go ahead you smart-arse know it all .. PROVE me wrong in anything I said. So they are improving -I would certainly hope so! Everyone else is too. Give any uninformed person a RD that thinks they are protected, especially some young buck kid who thinks he is invincible and waa laa, a great rabbit.



    I have said in many posts that Cobra had some really good ideas, even owned 3 of them back in the good ole 2 band days.

    Your racist comment is totally out of line.

    I could call you an argumentative know-it-all that very well could be a poser who just happened to read a book or two and makes up most of his experiences, but I wont because I have not proven it - but that is how you come across.


    Wow Dude take a chill pill. Seriously... Want proof.. opening page 12

    Am I really suppose to look into all your old posts just to find a small nicety or two that you said about the brand, MR. 18 band Cobra.. LOL!

    I own 5 NEW Cobra models right now and bought them to see how bad they actually were. They are not half as bad as people say they are which was a big surprise.

    Right now I am using one and have been pretty pleased with it so far.

    Your the one coming on making statements that " double of nothing is still nothing.." which is bashing no matter how you look at it.

    sorry it's just the truth no matter how you want to spin it your way

    Hell the model isn't even out yet and your doing this!

    amazing

    Here is a member's thread who is actually pleased with his cobra detector enough to write a continuing thread about his pleasant experiences with it.

    Cobra Vedetta Radar Detectors

    I know it's just amazing isn't it ! He just can't be telling the truth. He just has to work for the company ! LOL !

    I own this very same model he has, use it on a daily basis and have been pleasantly surprised with it's performance.

    As for Speedzone
    Ramp up of a RD has absolutely nothing to do with sensitivity! But you knew that already I'm sure.

    Hey, if your happy I'm happy, that's the nice kind of guy that I am - I just thought you would be sportin a STiR or V1.

    I' ve got little time for this nonsense - Let me know how these New units perform once they come out

    A interesting discussion to say the least,

    speedzones goes into great length on max sensitivity / ramp up unlike any other people who test detectors I know of.

    and I believe they were one of the first to point out that a detector's signal strength meter has been often gamed to make detectors look better then they actually are

    that's why they do a separate shorter range radar test

    The site has done a further newer test I wasn't aware of on two detectors that weren't tested last time and one that was and I thank you for making me look their tests up once again.

    apparently the v1 has a few rather large chinks in it's armor in the 33.8 and 35.5 ranges but I believe people who own one are aware of this already from the postings I have seen.

    The new Whistler AXIS was retested as requested by the company and performed better then the earlier test

    unfortunately this detector is on hold right now till legal issues on it's gps system are resolved ;(

    Just read Radar Roys article about the Vedetta and Cobra marketing scheme from your recommended review - huh, who would a thought?

    Back to original post comment,
    Go look at radartest.com review of I Rad 100- Awesome range - NOT. So you see if they double range and dont say which unit, like Irad 100 then it still is not much. Now if you double range of Vedetta in same test you have a unit that is the best the world has ever seen. Now lets be realistic what do you think it will be!

    Just sayin'

    read it already

    one of the guys here did a pretty good job of obliterating his argument.


    Sorry Roy but it's the truth

    I / tard / radar ? Blah !

    actually in your primary forum a user showed that he got fairly good radar reception with one of those older devices.

    I could care less about it actually. It counts on a community of users to alert you but what if these users aren't around?. I believe there are cell phone apps that are much better.

    There also appears to be a brand new Cobra radar detector that cover this silly nonsense coming out.

    but why bother to wait when you can look into your crystal ball and tell how it works already can't you?

    1. I don't need a crystal ball to see the obvious.

    2. First you use Roy as a source then you say he doesn't know diddly - which one is it sunshine!

    3. I don't care if you care about the IRad's it was to show you that their performance varies, and when they say they are improving performance of a unit but do not say which of their MANY versions they are comparing it to then there is no base line to go by.

    4. Opinions of someone that says their RD performs fairly well are useless unless there is another RD of known kind to validate the performance.

    5. If Speedzone had to redo their test and got different results then how good is their credibility on the first test?

    6. The ECCTG test that you are not impressed with is about the most accurate recent real world, non-biased test of current detectors you can currently find - like it or not. If you disagree then collect a dozen detectors, radar guns, and many hours of your own time and do your own, then publish the results for everyone to see free of charge.

    7. V1 has upped their performance with V1 connection and is probably the best in range and quickness of any current RD in any radar band - almost proven.

    8. RD fanatics that are truly into all out-performance do not have Cobra's.

    9. Every post you have for rebuttal is just a bunch of blah, blah, blah, and never really PROVE your point or address the point in clarity.

    10. I can't believe I'm wasting my time debating this with you.

    11. When these SPX units come out and are world class RD's then send me a message and I will apologize - I'll be waiting until..like NEVER!

    12. I could go on and ,but I won't.
